Is My Guppy Pregnant?

I just got 3 new guppies (1 male, 2 females) for my 10 gallon tank. Now that I start to look at them outside of the plastic bag I see a black Gravid Spot. Here are some pictures



My questions
Is she pregnant?
What to do if she is pregnant...
I have an extra 5 gallon tank and want to move her before she gives birth (if pregnant) when should I do this?
Any other information about having a pregnant guppy...

I'm not seeing any pictures, but if she is pregnant and you want to try to save some babies. Move her to the 5 gallon with a bunch of plants, otherwise she and the other fish will eat the babies. If you post some pictures I'll look at them.

Yes she is definitely preggo, as I mentioned above if you want to save babies move her into a planted tank let her give birth then remove her. I would go ahead and move her asap, if you do not add plants she will eat the babies. Let me know if you need any other help.

Yep, I can see the pics now too and agree with k19smith, she looks preggers to me. Follow that advice and everything will be o.k. It may be the angle of the pic but I think she still has a bit of time to go but putting her in your 5 gallon tank now is the best thing to do. As well as putting some plants in it you can also add a couple of small pieces of plastic water pipe or a plastic plant pot turned on its side, anything at all that you think will give the fry a hiding place.

The spots seem to be getting lighter and then really dark, but she still is pretty plump! I don't know if this is normal and would like some help!
